Ubisoft have changed their ways after the Watch Dogs downgrade backlash

After a pedantic yet righteous portion of the internet thumped Ubisoft for "downgrading" Watch Dogs between its E3 2012 showing and 2014 launch, Ubisoft have decided to shoot straight when it comes to gameplay footage.

Pre purchase Trackmania Turbo on Xbox One and PS4 for only £22.87

Trackmania Turbo was announced by Ubisoft at this years E3 and will release for both Xbox One and Playstation 4 on November 27th 2015. To be quite honest it looks like a rather cool fun racer and at £22.87 seems like a no brainer for a very good pre purchase price from Zavvi.

Make sure to use code E3UBI drop the listed price of £25.99.

Zombi rumoured to be heading to Xbox One and PS4

We strongly believe that ZombiU is possibly the most under-appreciated game of our current generation, seriously.

Unfortunately, due to poor sales as a launch title for the Wii U a sequel will never see the light of day on the platform given that Ubisoft have pretty much made it clear that they have no intention of producing games of a 'mature' feel on the Wii U anymore.

So what do you do? Well, first off you need to drop that U at the end of the game title, it's just not going to work any more.

E3 2015 Press Conference Reactions and Feature Article Roundup

Wow, the press conferences at E3 2015 were some of the best we've ever seen. It's been enormously difficult to find a clear winner between the big guns and the smaller publishers all had some quality games on show. Honestly, we're still recovering from Bethesda's Fallout 4 reveal though.

If you missed the live pressers (because you have a decent sleeping pattern), fear not, we braved the small hours to give your our team impressions from the Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, EA, Ubisoft, Bethesda and Oculus Rift conferences. Take a look at the links below and let us know what has you excited from E3 2015.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is happening

Feel free to snigger at the back

Trey Parker and Matt Stone vowed to never make another videogame after completing South Park: The Stick of Truth. Thankfully, at least for us, the big hypocrites have just announced a sequel entitled South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

Focusing on superheroes rather than fantasy this time around, you'll create your own origins story while enjoying an original plot centred around the hilarious hero episodes. Presumably we'll meet The Coon, Professor Chaos, Mint-Berry Crunch and more.

Details are thin on the ground, including release info. Watch this space (and this trailer!).

In one of the few real surprises of E3 2015 thus far, Ubisoft has revealed that the next Ghost Recon game will be a massive open world that lets you destroy cartels using vehicles, gunplay, tactics, skydiving, high-tech gadgets, stealth or total systemic chaos.

Welcome to the Wildlands.

Game Buzz Extra | The countdown to E3

With E3 right around the corner, it just wouldn't have felt right to not get the Dealspwn team together to discuss the incoming storm of gameplay reveals, shocking announcements, and terrible on-stage banter. So, we've brought back the beast that refuses to die - welcome to another edition of Game Buzz Extra! In this E3 Special, Carl, Jon and Brendan discuss yesterday's Oculus Rift conference before diving into their hopes and expectations for the rest of the pressers. Highlights include some of Jon's blue-sky-thinking, Brendan's surprising suggestion of what Sony will bring, and Carl warning all against any mentions of a certain remake.

Game Buzz Extra | The countdown to E3 - Recorded 12th June, 2015.

Beyond Good & Evil on PC only £1.69

Beyond Good & Evil may never see a sequel at this rate, but you certainly shouldn't let the original slip you by. At £1.69, you really should check it out.

You play as Jade, a young photojournalist keen to uncover a sinister government plot. Gameplay blends platforming, fighting, driving and some very rewarding stealth sections. There's an addictive photo mode too where you try to get a picture of every wildlife species in the game.

Ubisoft E3 2015 Predictions - "the road to forgiveness starts here"

E3 2015 is just around the corner, meaning that major publishers are lining up to showcase their wares in the shadow of MicrosoftSony and Nintendo. One of whom has more to prove than most.

2014 saw Ubisoft dragged through the mud for numerous mistakes, consumer-unfriendly decisions and intellectually offensive gaffes. With luck, E3 2015 will put them back in our good books. Here's what we expect from their press conference, what we want and just as importantly, what we don't.

Ubisoft E3 2015 Predictions - "the road to forgiveness starts here"

Not to start on a downer, but my wish list for games I want from the Ubisoft presser seems doomed to fail from the off, as I can't see how they'd fit them in with the games that have already been announced. But in a perfect world we'd be seeing a new Prince of Persia game, ideally one that gives me some goddamn closure on the 2008 original (not gonna happen).

A new Rayman title is certainly feasibly, as it wouldn't require a huge team to work on, but again, I just don't see it happening. You'd expect Beyond Good & Evil to have something to show after all these years, but I'm remaining pessimistic in the hopes I'll be wrong. I'd like to see Far Cry 5 become a reality and ditch last-gen so the series can evolve from the fun but safe fourth entry.

What will we actually get though? Extensive looks at The Division and Rainbow Six: Siege. I'm ready to be excited about The Division, I'm just so close to caring about it and need that little bit of brilliance to get the game out of the grey post-apocalypse box it's currently sat in.

Assassin's Creed: Victory, Ubisoft

The next Assassin's Creed title will be fully revealed on May 12th via a world premiere livestream. The mysterious trailer shows off some familiar yet intriguingly different equipment including a Steampunk-inspired wrist cannon, cane and knuckleduster. Everything a Victorian gentleman killer needs.

Why Victorian? Because we already know that Assassin's Creed Victory is coming thanks to those big fat leaks.

We'd love to see some massive new innovations this time around, but we'd probably settle for it not being totally broken. Either way, we'll bring you the latest on May 12th!

Child of Light only £3.00

We can't work out if Ubisoft are sitting on the sale of this little gem as it seems to be hidden away in their store with no big flashing banners to promote it's reduction, but for £3.00 Child of Light is an absolute steal from the Ubi Store.

"Child of Light proves that cheap downloadable RPGs can be done right after all. Visually enchanting and featuring a clever twist on classic turn-based combat, this puts many full-sized RPGs to shame.

ZombiU on Wii U is currently £4.95 from The Game Collection

Today's Flash Deal from The Game Collection provides yet another opportunity to get ZombiU for cheap. The saving may not be much, but let's be honest here - the fact one of the Wii U's most unique experiences is under a fiver is the important part here. Ubisoft's survival horror title won’t be to everyone’s tastes (much like those Souls games) but those brave enough to venture into the virtual streets of London will find a game that absolutely nails the terror of surviving against the hordes of the undead.

Ubisoft declares war on "fraudulent" serial keys, but hits gamers in the crossfire

Ubisoft find themselves in the headlines once again as angry gamers flock to the forums, complaining that their Far Cry 4 keys were mysteriously deactivated without any warning or explanation. It eventually transpired that all of these keys were bought from serial key resellers, companies that buy and sell on digital codes at significant discounts, with Ubisoft claiming that the keys in question were "fraudulently" obtained in the first place.

It's an interesting situation and there usually two sides to every story, but in this case, I feel that there are three. Publishers, illicit sources of serial keys and gamers stuck right in the crossfire. And everyone has something to learn here -- Ubisoft especially.

To be clear, the sale of Steam, Origin, PSN, Xbox Live and Uplay codes is legal and most sites comport themselves openly and legitimately. Everyone from Green Man Gaming to GamersGate, CDKeys and SimplyCDKeys. However, this is apparently a special case.
